has been developing energy here for decades. we need to protect their environment. we have a strict quarantine system to protect the integrity of the environment. forty years on, it's still a class-a nature reserve. it's our job to look after them. ...it's my job to look after it. ♪ >>> coming up, the republican doom and gloom vision of the obama economy just doesn't seem to match reality these days. i'll have the details coming up. >>> and while whistle-blowers come forward to describe the fraud that led to the financial collapse, the department of justice isn't going after wall street's ceos. i'll ask mike papantonio why they're just being let off the hook. you can listen to my radio show on sirius xm radio noon to 3:00 a.m. -- p.m. share your thoughts with us on #edshow. we're coming right back. uhh, it's next month, actually... eddie continues singing: to tickets to... paradiiiiiise! no four. remember? whoooa whooaa whooo! you know ronny, folks who save hundreds of dollars by switching to geico sure are happy. and how happy are they jimmy? happier than eddie money running a tr
a nation that is demanding action to create millions of jobs to transform our energy system, to come up with a fair tax proposal so the wealthy and large corporations start paying their fair share. we are not going to be able to do those things and many other things, the things, in fact, that mitch mcconnell and his billionaire friends are worried about, we are not going to be able to do that if we need 60 votes. no, i think what ended up happening is we could only get to the best of my knowledge 47, 48 votes. that was the reality. there were seven or so democrats who chose not to go along with what we call the talking filibuster, which would have meant 51 votes. and that's the story. >> it looks to me like we're reaching the point where the american public is growing more aware of filibuster reform that relates to substantive issues. and this is not a good deal. and it's going to be very interesting to see how this plays out. next week the president is going to be going to nevada to talk about immigration reform. i mean, do you think that we can get immigration reform in this country?
. the path towards sustainable energy sources will be long and sometimes difficult, but america cannot resist this transition. we must lead it. we cannot cede to other nations the technology that will power new jobs and new industries. we must claim its promise. >> this is not a president who is blind to the history of any given moment. today's inauguration ceremony was filled with moments of historical importance. myrlie evers williams, the widow of medgar evers became the first woman to deliver the inaugural prayer. poet richard blanco is the first latino to recite the inaugural poem, as well as the first openly gay american to perform the honor. supreme court justice sonia sotomayor became the first hispanic american to administer the oath of office when she swore in vice president joe biden. president obama spoke with these historical moments in mind during his speech. >> our journey is not complete until our gay brothers and sisters are treated like anyone else under the law. our journey is not complete until we find a better way to welcome the striving, hopeful immigrants who still see
american majority, of a new coalition in this country has seized that energy and is moving with it and understands in the speech he spoke of we, we the citizens invoking the greatest documents of our founding, saying you must participate in order to do that. but here is one thing, ed. you know, this country has been confronted with the politics of cycles. in some ways, the politics of the 20th century into the 21st century has been the unending struggle between the forces of the right and reaganism and the forces of roosevelt, the great society, a progressive majority. and i think the democrats need to understand that they need to be closer to main street than to wall street. and that when they don't defend the interests of the ordinary, average common american that they're letting slip away the power to shape a new coalition. >> when you look at gaye rights, when you look at immigration reform, which the republicans and the conservatives have rejected, when you look at the economy of income inequality in this country, has conservatism been rejected? >> conservatism has bee
it was a desperate act, but failed shot will also do. ed, i really think the emotional energy among the republicans is about their frustration at the way they lost the presidential election and their sort of lashing out at major figures in the democratic party such as hillary clinton as they begin the 2016 cycle. rand paul, senator rand paul imagined himself as president and dreamed of how he would have fired hillary clinton. but as implausible as it may seem to our viewers tonight, rand paul wants to run for president and thinks he can get elected. and he's going to run on the rejectionist line. he's going to run on the antagonism to all powerful, famous people on the inside line. now that he's -- even though he's a senator himself. so in terms of 2016 republican politics, that was rand paul making his debut for 2016. >> well, are there others that were a part of that panel that are grandstanding politically right now? >> well, sure. of course. although not necessarily for president. i think john mccain has been on ever since he -- ever since he lost the election in 2008, i think he's been on a pe
